Desdemona- Toni Morrison

Reading is not a passive activity.  We engage with texts, struggle with them, work with their meanings to us.  Sometimes a reading comes across as a powerful new way of looking at a familiar text.  Listen to this song with words by Toni Morrison,  You can read the English and Italian translations of the words above as the singer lilts her hypnotic melody around you.

The singer is Rokia Traoré and I found her by following a link from The Guardian.

This has given me something to think on for more than one day.  Thank you.
